Another user, Edin Jusupovic commented:
“When Litecoin hits $1000, assuming a 70M LTC circulation, that’s only a small $70B market cap. Apple single-handedly wiped out $64 billion in just a matter of hours after revising revenue projections.
Litecoin is sound money for the world, and it’s worth 10x more than Apple.”
